I took Sensory Friendly 101 Training for my business to work toward providing a more accessible service and ended up leaving with more information than I thought I would get.

I hope more businesses use their sensory-friendly solutions so I can look forward to a day where I (and 33% of the population) will feel comfortable going to events and concerts with everyone else.

Sensory overload is overwhelming, but the solutions can be simple.

This mantra of simplicity drives solutions created by Sensory Friendly Solutions with founder and CEO, Christel Seeberger at the lead.

Working in health care for 30 years, Christel saw how sensory sensitivity and sensory overload caused people to feel overwhelmed, anxious and stressed in daily life. 

People of all ages simply stopped living life when they could not find sensory-friendly experiences at work, in their community, or when they travelled.

With the disability of adult-onset hearing loss, Christel understands these problems personally; she also experiences sensory sensitivity and sensory overload.

Christel founded Sensory Friendly Solutions to make the world more-sensory-friendly.
